“Life-sustaining pills are considered mid-grade pills or above, even if they are low grade, they are still low grade mid-grade pills.” Qing Mo hated how he couldn’t use these pills now.
“Ninth Sister, how long have I been cultivating?”
She thought carefully, “Fifteen days or maybe sixteen days.”
Qian Wanyu stared at the porcelain vase for a while before shaking her head, “It has taken me almost a month to advance, let’s leave now.”
If she were Qian Zhuoxi, she’d certainly try look for the inheritance at all costs, the life pills compared to that is simply insignificant, she casually waved her hand, Little White who was still asleep floated out and she took it into her space ring directly.
It was easier to go out than come in, once they were out of the cave, the light outside was not as strong as the glowing light worms inside.
“Seventh sister, senior sister Bai Rou and the rest should be okay, right?” Dongfang Minghui thought she could at least meet them if she continued waiting, but it turned out that half a month had passed and she hadn’t seen them.
Qian Wanyu gave her a look, reached out and lightly rubbed her hair, she said in a serious tone, “Each of them should have their own opportunities, following us would actually hinder them from being able to seize their own opportunities.”
She felt that she didn’t think as thoroughly as Seventh sister, so after walking for a while, she took out a dense notebook in the space ring and tore a piece of paper from it, “Seventh sister, since that’s the case should we go to the fourth peak now?”
The third peak and the fourth peak seemed to be adjacent, but they were actually a long distance apart. This road was a shortcut discovered by Qian Yiling, even so, she followed them all the way in the illusion and encountered many unknown dangers.
“Is this a map you drew?”
Dongfang Minghui blinked but didn’t reply, anyway her real body has already been recognized by Seventh sister, those scribbles were probably already known long ago.
Qian Wanyu picked it up and looked at it seriously, she didn’t say anything and put the map into her space ring after reading it, pulling Dongfang Minghui’s hand step by step towards the front.
“Seventh sister, don’t you suspect that the map is fake?”
“I believe you.”
A single word warmed her whole heart. When Dongfang Minghui thought of the cozy world of the two of them in modern times, she couldn’t help thinking of the possibility of them returning back to the modern world when Seventh sister advanced to Spiritual Saint.
“What are you giggling about?”
The road to the fourth peak was underground.
Qian Wanyu read the map and remembered the entire route, she found the place where the two peaks were adjacent to each other. There was a small stream with a special flow, “The location shown on the map is here.”
Dongfang Minghui nodded, she did not quite remember the way, all she could do was mark the place where Qian Yiling and Qian Ziyan arrived in the mirror, she simply described the geographical location of the surrounding area.
Qian Wanyu took the paper out again and cross-referenced it, “This should be it.”
Dongfang Minghui didn’t not know how to crisis the water, the last time when she followed them they used a boat to float through, plus when she touched the water there was no feeling so it was like she was floating above it. Obviously it wasn’t as simple in the real world.
“Seventh sister, how do we cross over?”
Qian Wanyu pondered for a moment, she cut a few logs with spiritual power, and afterwards used the binding immortal rope to bind all these logs firmly, a simple raft was made by her, “Let’s go.”
Before she could protest, she saw Qian Wanyu gently throw the raft into the stream, then she was pulled to stand on top of the raft in front of her eyes.
“Seventh sister, this kind of raft won’t be able to withstand it.” She was speaking the absolute truth, she had seen Seventh sister’s mother and Uncle Wood using a more luxurious raft, at least there were raised sails, but halfway even that raft was destroyed by a monster in the water.
“Ninth Sister don’t be afraid, when the time comes, you just hold Seventh sister’s waist tightly.” Qian Wanyu teasingly smiled towards her, the water thunder whip in her hand was drawn out with a swift speed, and she turned serious, “Let your contracted magic plant pull those trees along the way to ensure that our raft will not be washed down by the rapid flow.”
This was indeed a good idea.
The fat doll glared at Dongfang Minghui, still angry at her for not giving it the pill, but it did what it had to do, the vines went through the bottom of the raft to hold it steady, and the other end went through its hands and weaved into the surrounding trees, fastening it tightly. Every so often it looked for a new reference point that could be tied by the vines.
“Little Colour, don’t blame me for not warning you, there will be a large water beast jumping out later, if you can capture it, this thing you can do whatever you want with.” She kindly reminded.
“You promise? You can’t take it back!”
As soon as the fat doll heard that there was a large water monster, it immediately came to life, with a pair of bulging eyes looking around the raft, excitedly jumping up and down on top of the raft, like a naughty monkey.
Dongfang Minghui couldn’t help but laugh, the water monster was quite big, she didn’t know if Little Colour could digest it.
Qian Wanyu stood at the bow of the boat, always on alert, they kept this state for a whole day, but did not see any water beasts, the rapid river was fast and occasionally there were a few emergencies, but they were avoided by Little Colour’s excellent control.
Soon, they were about to face a waterfall-like impact, the surrounding bushes also gradually become less and less, to the next bend, there was little to no place to anchor down to with the vines.
It was getting late and they had been drifting in the stream all day, the moonlight reflected on the water. The weak light added some eeriness to the surroundings and the water below the surface was pitch black. People could not really see everything on the surface of the water.
“Seventh sister, we have to pay attention to this place.”
Dongfang Minghui squatted down, and held the silk umbrella behind her tightly in her hands.
Qian Wanyu wanted to use a rope to bolt her to her waist so they wouldn’t get separated by accident, “The water isn’t calm.”
The fat doll looked toward the water, it did not expect that just after it poked out a head a tail wrapped around its extremely short neck, instantly dragging it into the water.
A huge wave was stirred up in the river, and water splashed onto the two.
Dongfang Minghui squatted down and used one hand to fish in the water, after trying for awhile she couldn’t find anything. Instead, the makeshift raft having lost Little Colour’s grip began to shake violently as if it would disintegrate at any second.
“Ninth Sister, don’t move, something is attacking our raft below.”
It was late at night and they were still on the water, she couldn’t swim and didn’t want to be the first Spiritual Scholar to be drowned in the Seven Coloured Continent!
The raft was bound with a binding immortal rope, which was a weapon that could not be easily broken, so no matter how those things under the river tossed about, the rope remained firm. Still, she felt that the raft was getting looser and looser.
As she expected, the group of magical beasts under the river saw that it was difficult to bite off the rope, so they turned their attention to the wood of the raft. A piece of wood broke from the middle, and the wood separated from the sides and was washed away by the water.
The remaining few logs loosely began to move around, and Dongfang Minghui did not dare to move randomly.
Qian Wanyu stood on a single log, the water thunder whip in her hand carried purple lightning every time she waved it, and the water was struck by her whip creating countless waves along with loud crackling sounds.
Soon a beast in the water tumbled out like a dead fish blowing bubbles, the water surface instantly rose and wave after wave pounced, before the raft was already on the verge of collapse. From this wave beasts it completely got destroyed.
Qian Wanyu used one hand to keep a grip on the wood close to her and the hand holding water thunder whip rolled up the water finding the bundle of immortal rope.
The two people could escape the first wave but the second wave followed.
“Seventh sister, it’s not a wave, there is something behind!”
Qian Wanyu used a few thunderbolts and attacked towards the wave, but, the wave was so big that it directly doused her thunderbolts, this was the first time she encountered such a situation, “This thing should be the one making waves underwater.”
The main culprit was found, if they cleaned it up then the water can be restored to calm. This was what Qian Wanyu is thinking of at the moment.
“Hey Seventh sister, there is another log over there, let me get on that instead, I will drag you down if I follow you.”
“Good, use your spiritual power to protect yourself.”
Qian Wanyu saw that she stood firm on her own log before she put her full attention on this weird beast. She infused the half block of wood under her feet with her spiritual power, like a purple thunderbolt she dashed into the wave of water like lightning.
She entered the water wave before seeing the water beast’s body, a huge tentacle monster! Its largest head resembled the big head of a jellyfish, and the tentacles derived from its body were like an octopus. She looked at it for a long time and thought it was the product of a combination of octopus and jellyfish.
The battle between them continued for a day and a night.
Little Colour who had been dragged in the water was furious, its body was plant based, even if it liked water it definitely didn’t like being immersed in water. Currently it was being dragged by a thick thing underwater to some deep place.
Dozens of vines inside its body revealed sharp spines Dongfang Minghui had never seen before, they were completely different from Blue Star Dream’s thorny branches. Its sharp spines were all very long, longer than a normal human hand and thin, like iron spikes, it sooned turned the water beast that kidnapped it into a hedgehog.
Bright red blood tumbled from the bottom to the surface of the river.
Dongfang Minghui had been nervously watching the battle as well as watching out for any other water monsters that would sneak up on her from time to time. She had just seen something scurry out of the water and without thinking, she picked up her finger knife to cut it into two.
Little Colour gave her a sad look, fortunately its vines shrank relatively quickly, the fat doll salvaged a whole bunch of items up from below the water including space rings and various porcelain bottles, even a piece of iron.
Dongfang Minghui was amazed, this piece of iron she had almost forgotten about, this was the third piece she’d managed to obtain. From the pattern, it should be related to the two pieces Toothless found before.
“Give this to me, the rest you keep for yourself.”
The fat doll’s eyebrows curved up and it smiled, “Help me keep it int he space ring later it’ll certainly be useful.”
After that, it flew up to the sky, the vines divided into a dozen strands and stabbed into the huge water beast, one of them even scampered onto its big head, forcibly pulling off a piece of the beast core in its head.
The sky was full of flying blood, it was a kind of blue blood.
Dongfang Minghui was drenched and turned into a blue person.
Qian Wanyu breathed a sigh of relief after the fight was over, her eyes slightly narrowed, she just smelled a fierce breath, this was the second time she’d felt it. The first was when Little Colour and Ninth Sister just signed the blood contract, this time… she looked at the water beast that had been turned into a sieve by Little Colour.
“Little Colour, it’s yours.”
Little Colour proudly twisted its chubby body and dragged the huge water beast corpse towards Dongfang Minghui, “It’s all treasure, put it into the space ring too.”
“No way, it’s so big, can it fit inside?”
Qian Wanyu and Little Colour answered her in the same breath.
It had been stated by both of them so she couldn’t help but resign herself to dragging all of Little Colour’s loot back into a separate space. The blue liquid from the water beast filled up the space and turned it into a blue reservoir.
The journey continued and each of them stepped on a separate block of wood, Little Colour’s vines looked around for a landing point before finally uniting the three blocks together. With Little Colour at the helm, their speed was a thousand miles a day, by the next night, they arrived at their destination.
Dongfang Minghui’s eyes were sharp, before they could land on the shore, she saw a faint glow emanating from the opposite side.
Qian Wanyu naturally saw it as well, she sensed that there were probably no less than five people on the shore, she even heard the sound of conversation coming from the wind. Since she had awakened her wind spiritual power, she found that her hearing was much sharper than in the past.
She signaled Little Colour to pull the three of them to the shore then she wrapped her spiritual power around her feet.
When Dongfang Minghui saw this, she also learned to make her spiritual energy run to her feet, now they walked like the wind, making them completely inaudible.
Five people sat around the campfire, the flame was still vigorous despite the cold wind of the river although it wavered twice before the flame weakened a few points. This was why they had been able to see it from a long distance.
“Boss, I don’t know where Miss is now, why do you think she didn’t bring us along? Instead, she asked us to stay here to guard against others, really makes me angry.” This person’s name was Zhang San.
He was a loyal supporter of Qian Zhuoxi, but he was angry that Miss listened to the arrangement of Meng Yixiao instead and left these five sworn brothers behind to guard. Guard against who? He didn’t know…
But he was still full of grievances sitting here idling away.
The one who was called the boss looked at the sparks from the fire, “It shows that Miss values us.”
“Boss, why do you say this?”
“The fourth peak isn’t something that just anyone can break into, look at how Miss is willing to tell us the secret of entering the fourth peak, what is it if it’s not trust?”
“Lao Er, there are no buts. We have to trust Miss.”
“Boss, although that’s what I think too, this person Meng Yixiao is too evil, if he hadn’t suggested it we might still be following Missy.”
“Eldest Miss is just temporarily deluded.”
Qian Wanyu hid in the grass and listened carefully to their exchange, after listening for a while she understood. Qian Zhuoxi really acted just as she expected. After knowing how to reach the sixth peak of the Qian Family she wanted to arrive faster than her to seize the inheritance.
But, did she really think these few people could hinder her? Really ridiculous.
Dongfang Minghui also had to hold back laughing, these people beside Qian Zhuoxi were very foolish. That Miss of their’s had clearly left them behind to act as cannon fodder but they could still talk about trust or no trust. What surprised her even more was that the other party actually informed bystanders of the route from the third peak to the fourth peak, this Qian Zhuoxi was simply crazy!
Ooo more exploration!
